Brighton taxi driver wins new Mercedus Brabus car {{favouriteCount}} Quantity of Likes

A TAXI driver is upgrading his wheels after winning a Mercedes Brabus, worth £187,000, and £50,000 in cash from an online competition.

Atef Ikladios from Brighton said it was “a dream come true” to win the prize, after paying £5 for a ticket.

Christian Williams, presenter for competitions company BOTB, turned up at Atef’s house to tell him the good news, leaving him in shock and joy.

Atef, who lives with his wife in Southwick, immediately recognised Christian when he arrived to tell him the good news and was taken to a car dealership for a grand unveiling of his new car.

“Is it real? I can’t believe it. It’s my dream day today,” he said.

He was left even more shocked when it was revealed there is only one other Mercedes Brabus in the UK and was presented with £50,000 in the boot of the top-of-the-range car.

He said: “This is life-changing for me and my family. We’re looking to buy a house, so this will help with that.”

BOTB, founded in 1999, has given away more than £47 million worth of cars so far.
